Come on all you Shar people, how will Phil the Thrill cut $6 million out of the budget? Gaydos doesn't travel all that much and the travel budget is under $50 grand. So cutting travel (note that all travel will not be allowed to be cut because the teachers are allowed to do what they want under their contract) won't solve it. How will this be accomplished? Do tell...

The fact that Cerra and Mrs. Shar don't respond to these items tell you that they must be true. Just like with Risha's son. There is no defense for what he did. There is no defense for how Shar treated women and his lack of a platform.

Let's review all this.
-Pat Risha, Sr. is the current Superintendent of the West Mifflin School District.
-Years ago, while at Clairton, he was suspended for fixing a student's grade so he could play sports.
-The school board allows him to work from home at a salary of $135,000, yet his contract states he is to visit every school at least once a month. We all know that isn't happening.
-He stated publicly that he is going to have gastric bypass surgery which will allow him to return to work. It is 5 months later and no surgery.
-When he was hired by the district, one of the reasons given was that he had experience building schools....and we do need a new middle school. Unfortunately, the school built while he was superintendent at South Allegheny has a 3-inch wide crack through the center of the building. South Allegheny is going to sue the contractors. That shouldn't make you feel good about our chances for the upcoming middle school.
-Pat Risha, Jr. tried unsuccessfully to open up a Gentlemen's Club in the city, and just last week was arrested for shooting his gun at the Westwood Golf Club. Probably not the smartest move when you are going through the zoning process of building homes on golf course property.
In the upcoming election and the one in two years, don't forget the school board members who support Pat Risha.
West Mifflin residents are fed up, and it's time for a change.

None of this will cut $6 million from the school's budget. How will that be done?

I'm not speaking for Shar, but this exposes the current superintendent and the corruption in the current school board. You are never going get the school district heading the right direction unless these problems are fixed. There is no simple solution; the problem is widespread which requires a multifaceted solution.

So to do what the opposite of the current administration would do, does that mean get test scores down, cut all day kindergarten and preschool for the needy, cut the special needs programs and close a school or two? What are these problems other than Risha working from home?

other than Risha working from home, what is the problem? High taxes? OK how would Shar cut them? He threw 6 million out there, how would he do it? What else is wrong? Better programs for at need kids? Cut them! All day kindergarten? Cut it to half day! Free Preschool for poor people (yes blacks)? Cut it! AYP going up? Let it fall!

1) So you admit Risha working from home is a problem.

2) I didn't say the opposite direction. The opposite direction would be for the high school to meet AYP and not be on School Improvement. Using your logic, a person who murders 10 people one year but only murders 7 people the next year is improving. I still think the person is a murderer and has not improved.

THe high school is tougher because these kids were in elementary school under the failed policies of the previous board (Butko, DOnis, Rubonsak, Connolly) The best way to get a kid up to speed iw when they are young. The AYP of ALL elementary schools and the middle schools is showing this. The kids who were the first class to get all day kindergarten are in 2nd grade now. These are the kids who will reap the full benefits of what has been changed. Using your logic, if you don't like the color of your bedrooms walls, lets rip the whole thing down and rebuild it from the ground up. I don't want Shar to close New ENgland or cut these programs! He is so blinded by his hatred for Risha and Olasz that he is willing to sacrifice the future of the elementary students by cutting programs. All these old guys are out of touch.

You forgot to blame George Bush and Phil Shar for the problem too. You listed four people - who were the other five school board members? The elementary schools and middle school are fine, but when the kids get to high school they get stupid? I don't think so. The WM HS has been in academic trouble the past few years. Who was the superintendent - Risha. Who was on the school board and also the president - Olasz. The main issue at the high school is the students coming from another SD. You can try and fix the WM elementary schools and middle school, but the problem will still exist at the high school unless your plan is to create super geniuses at a younger age to bring up average scores of the other SD students, but then you still wouldn't be addressing the real problem. I'm not saying to stop the effort at the elementary schools and middle school - I'm saying you don't understand the problem and therefore you cannot develop a complete solution. As soon as the new school opens, we will get more of the other SD students and the academic problem will get worse not better. Using YOUR logic, lets make the smarter kid smarter and leave the problem kid alone to improve the academic scores. This is not the best solution.

Standing back and letting the other SD to come to our district will have ramifications for decades.
WOW WEE WHOA
